One way to vertically center a line of text in a container div is to set line-height to be the same as the height of the container. But that requires specifying line-height in pixels. This technique avoids that. <!doctype html> <html> <head> <style typ...

It's probably more useful to make the JavaScript executor a bookmarklet. That way it gains access to the page on which it is invoked. Therefore, more helpful while debugging. Here's the code: <html> <body> <a href="javascript:(funct... Or, you can add this link to your bookmarks, name it "JS Executor". For a full featured JavaScript console, you may need Jash

If CSS3 border-image is properly supported, making a rounded corner box is very easy. You just need a round corner image like this: The following markup: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ... would render like this (try it in Firefox 3.5 and Google Chrome): However, IE as of version 8.0 does not support border-image . So until border-image is reliably supported in all major browsers, we still have to rely on tried and true tricks to make it work. In general, I found three general categories of tricks to make rounded corners: Good old tables. This trick creates a table of 9 cells and uses the 8 cells on the perimeter to render the borders and rounded corners. The central cell is used for...

The code presented here is a simple implementation of a tab set. It is used to demo how a tab set could be implemented. The code is stand alone and does not depend on any JavaScript libraries. Multiple tab sets within the same page is supported. The HTML markup is fairly simple: Tabs sets are contained within a DIV element with class name "tabsContainer". Define a UL list for the tabs. Follow the UL list with equal number of DIVs for the tab contents. The Nifty Corners Cube technique is used to draw the rounded corners (original form, not the enhanced JavaScript form). HTML, CSS and JavaScript: <!doctype html> <html> <head> <style typ...

In this note I'll show you how to create and package a JSP custom tag. The purpose of this tag is to display a random splash image for a home page, among a set of images. We should be able to add or delete candidate splash images from the WAR archive without the need to change the JSP. This is the intended use of the tag: <%@ taglib uri="http://custom.tag.com/demo" prefix... In the above example you provide a set of images named splash*.png (e.g., splash1.png, spalsh2.png, ...), and the tag will pick a random one to display when the JSP is rendered. Let's get started. I'll use Maven for this purpose. Create the standard Maven directory structure ./pom.xml ./src ./src/main ./src/main/jav... pom.xml <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... SplashTag.java package tagdemo; import java.util.ArrayList......

Many techniques for making rounded corners do not work well when the element being rounded is displayed on a background with a different color (or multiple colors). Example 1: Nifty Cube with JavaScript <html> <head> <base href="http://www.html.i... Example 2: modx Simple Rounded Corner Box <html> <head> <title>Round Corner</title> ... Example 3: CSS3 (does not work in IE) <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ... Example 4: This is one that actually works ! The nifty corner technique can be tweaked to be background friendly, although the JavaScript version didn't work for some reason. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" ...

Existing techniques use background images to make round corners. I present a technique here that uses four foreground images: . I think this technique is easier to understand and use. The only requirements are: Add position: relative to the CSS for the box to be rounded Matching border and color between the box to be rounded and the corner images Here's the HTML with static elements: <!doctype html public '-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN' ... The markup is even easier if we use jQuery to add the corners dynamically: <!doctype html public '-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN' ... This is the result:
